There are a number of pre-existing conditions that can affect those participating in running and other full-body cardio, as well as conditions that can develop over time as a result of overexertion of the muscles in the feet or extended periods of wearing incorrect or insufficient footwear. Shin splints are the most commonly caused foot ailment as a result of intense exercise or insufficient footwear protection. Shin splints develop as a result of high-impact and explosive workouts and are common among runners, joggers, new military recruits, and other individuals who are unaccustomed to explosive workouts involving the lower body. However, this condition can be easily treated and prevented by implementing the proper custom orthotics for shin splints and high-intensity workouts. Another painful ailment that may be affecting both the novice and expert runner is metatarsalgia, which occurs when the metatarsal head begins to experience chronic pain and inflammation. The most common symptoms have been described as walking on pebbles or stones on the ball of your foot which greatly limits mobility and endurance when it comes to running and walking. Orthotics for metatarsalgia is the best route for treatment and prevention as described by your doctor. Lastly, individuals with pre-existing conditions have just as much to gain from the inclusion of custom insoles into their workout or daily routines. For example, individuals with flat feet commonly experience serious foot pain during intense workouts due to the fact that all of the pressure in their step is being solely supported to the heel of the foot. Custom orthotics for flat feet can reverse this trend and alleviate a lot of the long-term damage one may cause to their feet with this kind of condition. As you can see, custom orthopedic inserts are applicable and useful over a wide variety of demographics and applications; and with Footstar’s convenient at-home molding process getting your hands on custom insoles has never been easier.
